A new target to saber-rattle against?

The Harper Government has of late decided that saber-rattling against certain countries will make them look tough and appear to the Canadian public as standing up for Canadian sovereignty. Russia has been the main target in that regard, but I wouldn’t be shocked to see Foreign Affairs Minister Lawrence Cannon and/or Defence Minister Peter MacKay come out and start going off against China over this story of a discovered cyber-espionage network based in China.

Never mind that so far, no Canadian targets of this espionage network has been discovered (not from reading the story anyhow) or that there is no proof yet that any of these hackers are officially linked to the Chinese government. If the strategists at the PMO believes it will score political points, you’ll see some public statement come out of the Harper government trying to look tough on this.
